In 2014, applicants who passed the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) administered by the West Bengal government protested against the state government for not being appointed. Hundreds of applicants who have been waiting for appointments for the past two days have staged a massive demonstration in Salt Lake.
The protest took place at the headquarters of the West Bengal Board of Primary Education in Salt Lake City. In 2014, the candidates who passed the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) staged a protest demanding the recruitment letter.
After qualifying the written TET 2014 exam, the protesters said that they took part in two interviews, but they failed to get the place which the board claimed they had already finished. The protesting applicants claim that they do not want to appear for the new exam scheduled by the government this year. Instead, they want to get recruited as teachers in the schools sponsored and aided by the Government of West Bengal as per the old merit list.
Earlier in the day, protesters gheraoed the headquarters of the Board of Primary Education after disrupting traffic at the major Karunamayi intersection.
Government should take responsibility for corruption and irregularities: BJP
Corruption and irregularities should be the duty of the government. BJP state secretary Priyanka Tibrewal claimed that the administration is a complete failure. TET 2014 graduates were not given employment. They are being asked by the government to re-appear for the exam. Some students are no longer able to do so as the age restriction is over.
